Stained glass has enriched our places of worship for many centuries and few people can be unmoved by the beauty of a fine window.

Unfortunately stained glass has also been one of the least accessible art forms, often only viewable in situ and then not usually by many people. In the British Isles there are countless examples of fine stained glass windows in small, remote, towns and villages which receive few visitors. In America, in addition to problems of remoteness, there are also problems of access as churches are generally locked when services are not being held and this renders casual visiting impossible.

Furthermore, when viewed in situ it is often extremely difficult, if not impossible, to see all the detail which stained glass windows have to offer. Even if one has 20/20 vision it is sometimes hard to take in all the details in a window which may be 30, 40 or 60 feet distant. This problem is often exacerbated by the sharp contrast between the lightest and most brightly lit glass and the darkness of the interior.
